I was pleasantly surprised to see two packages on my kitchen counter when I arrived home from work this evening.
My very first Birchbox came in the mail today along with another running surprise! My new Pro Compression socks!!!
I stumbled upon these two fun treats from two amazing bloggers:
My Birchbox subscription came from Kate with The Small Things Blog
My Pro Compression Sock purchase came from Skinny Runner
Both of these girls have great blogs that are very different and very inspirational!
First, lets talk about my Birchbox package!
I subscribed to a 12 month Birchbox subscription. Every month I will receive a package of sample beauty and health products. For just $110 a year I will get 12 packages delivered straight to my house with high end products to try. For only about $9.17/month I thought it would be a fun little surprise to look forward to each month.
Lets see what April’s Birchbox bought.
1. Befin Skincare Sampler
2. NAIL POLISH! Color Club Nail Lacquer
3. Perfume-Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy
4. June Jacobs Perfect Pumpkin Enzyme Polis
5. ShowStoppers Designer Fashion Tape
I am most excited about the nail polish and Juicy perfume. I always have my nails polished and I love this spring’s bright colors. This month’s color was Age of Aquarius. It is a bright turquoise/minty color that is going to be really fun to wear this spring and fall.
I love carrying small sample perfumes in my purse. You never know when you are going to need a little spritzing to freshen up.
The skincare products are going to be interesting to try. I am not much of a face wash/moisturizer person. I do wash my face! Just not with expensive products.
Such a fun little box. I think I am really going to enjoy getting these each month. Thanks for the recommendation Kate!
Next the Socks!
Of course I got hot pink!
I discovered these socks from Skinny Runner’s blog when she posted a $20 off coupon. I always wanted a pair of compression socks for running and recovering. With a $20 off coupon I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try them out. These types of socks can run for $60.00 a pair or more. Mine were only $30.00 with free shipping.
I can’t wait to try them out. Thanks Skinny Runner!
Hope everyone had a sweaty and productive day!
P.S. My arms and back muscles hurt so bad post yoga work out!
